So i usually buy the natures miracle brand potty pads. Yes they are expensive (usually most expensive), but they are awesome! They absorbe urine and they even dry! They dont smell either. I was buying 50 packs (tha ts the largest) for 26.00 + tax (at petsmart, they are cheaper than petco). So i was there the other day and i noticed this 100 pack for only 32.99... the brand was different, but there was only one box left so i figured they would work fine, a pee pee pad is a pee pee pad right? WRONG! If they are urined on the puddle just stays there all day for your pup to step in. And the white absorbent pad is not as large (the plastic borders are much bigger and my pups tend to pee on the edges of them). They are called Economy Puppy Training Pads and they come in a large blue carboard box. I just want everyone to know this because i thought i was getting a bargain but i really was just setting myself up for hassle! I have to change the pads eachtime they are used because the pee gets stepped in and like i said they are not at large. Oh well atleast i will get through them quickly. I dont reccomend them at all, i really like the natures miracle brand, they are expensive but they really make it a lot easier. What brands do you guys use or reccomend?


i dont mean to offend anyone who uses these pads :wave:

I used to use those and I agree... they aren't much of a bargain. I use ones from Walmart called Out! Angel is pretty happy with them and they work pretty well for us.

hmm my puppy doesn't use pee pee pads..we house trained him to do his buisness outside.. but since winters are cold here we are thinking about litter box training because we have other dogs, we figured it would be easier than pee pee pads.. anyone know which is easier or more convienient with other dogs??

:blob4: I must say its up to you . Try both .For me it is easier to use the pee pee pads since i just have to pick them up and go.the litter you need to scoop the poop up and not recommend for people with physical problems.i have heared using cat litter but i have never tried this.

I'm glad you asked,,,I'm wondering too. We originally trained our pups to go on puppy pads, and they work fine. It's just that it get's to be really expensive, especially with two, if you p/u the pad after one pee, and even though it abosorbs somewhat, it still smells somewhat, and it's not exactly nice to look at when you have company. Anybody litter train? Anybody done both? What are the pros and cons?
